To follow up on our recent announcement that our great friend and teacher, Tony Manzoni passed away on 10/13/18. We have set up a Tony Manzoni Memorial Golf Smarter Fund with the First Tee of Coachella Valley. All tax deductible donations will benefit youth golf in the Palm Springs/Indio County area of Southern California. We have been assured that all donations will support programs, equipment, in-school and after-school programs so that more children can also learn golf’s inherent values. We have setup a page to make donations and it will also feature articles, tributes, podcasts, and videos that have featured Tony.
